- Uncommon Stock is all souped up.
Soup makers might just be more accurate than weather forecasters when it comes to predicting the weather. Todd Schulte
, co-owner of Happy Gillis and the Genessee Royale Bistro, opened a new soup operation, Uncommon Stock
, with Bill Haw Jr. (who talked with The Pitch
this May about running the Hotel Frederick) last weekend right around the time that Kansas Citians started taking jackets out of the closets. It's a return to Schulte's roots. He made and delivered soups with his Happy Soup Eater business before opening two restaurants with his wife, Tracy Zinn. And Haw Jr.'s family has been a big supporter of Schulte, encouraging him to bring the Genessee Royale to the West Bottoms.
The menu changes weekly. This weekend's soups, available by the quart, are oven-roasted tomato with fresh basil, roasted mushroom with sherry and fresh thyme, and lentil soup with autumn vegetables and sausage. Uncommon Stock (549 Gillis), located in the "garage" space next to Happy Gillis in Columbus Park, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.
